The Just Impact Fund

Host Organization: National Philanthropic Trustmdi-circle-small Jenkintown, PA , USA mdi-circle-small


Just Impact advises donors of all types who wish to achieve maximum impact with their dollars in the movement to end mass incarceration. We are field experts who operate like an external program team, offering grants management, strategic assessments, donor education, and high-impact funding opportunities to our network of donors.

Mass incarceration in America is a social and economic disaster. Millions of people cycle through jails and prisons each year, and come out worse. 1 in 2 Americans has an immediate family member who’s been incarcerated. This traumatic cycle does not make communities safer and fuels deepening poverty. The system targets people of color, especially Black and indigenous people. Many see this as the leading racial justice issue of our day.

Right now, we have a once in a lifetime chance to change this. There is a unique convergence of opportunity, talent, and strategy to change policies and practices impacting millions of people. High-impact organizations are ready to absorb funding. The Just Impact fund structure increases the collective impact of individual donors by pooling capital and deploying it strategically.
